Three shows had series lows in adults 18-49 Wednesday night: “Empire” (2.9 rating) led the night by a substantial margin, per usual, but went below 3.0 in the demo for the first time in its two-plus seasons. “Criminal Minds” (1.3) was down 0.3 vs. its last episode to its all-time low, and “Blindspot” (1.0) is off a tenth from its most recent episode, also setting a new series low. Additionally “Designated Survivor” (1.2) tied its low from two weeks ago.
Elsewhere, however, numbers were fairly steady or slightly improved. “Survivor” (1.9) bounced back 0.3 from its World Series-induced low last week, and “Code Black” rose by two tenths of a point — although it was still below the 1.0 mark at 0.9. “The Goldbergs” (2.0) improved by two tenths on ABC, and the other comedies were fairly steady. “Lethal Weapon” rose a tenth vs. its last episode to 1.8. “Arrow” and “Frequency” were in line with their averages for The CW.

Rating: Estimated percentage of the universe of TV households (or other specified group) tuned to a program in the average minute. Ratings are expressed as a percent.
Fast Affiliate Ratings: These first national ratings are available at approximately 11 a.m. ET the day after telecast. The figures may include stations that did not air the entire network feed, as well as local news breaks or cutaways for local coverage or other programming. Fast Affiliate ratings are not as useful for live programs and are likely to differ significantly from the final results, because the data reflect normal broadcast feed patterns.
Share (of Audience): The percent of households (or persons) using television who are tuned to a specific program, station or network in a specific area at a specific time.
Time Shifted Viewing: Program ratings for national sources are produced in three streams of data – Live, Live +Same-Day and Live +7 Day. Time-shifted figures account for incremental viewing that takes place with DVRs. Live+SD includes viewing during the same broadcast day as the original telecast, with a cut-off of 3 a.m. local time when meters transmit daily viewing to Nielsen for processing. Live +7 ratings include viewing that takes place during the 7 days following a telecast.
